Inside the ZIP file you can see a directory structure like this one:

├── k4_q3
│   ├── clusters.csv
│   ├── edges_with_topics.csv
│   ├── nodes_with_clusters.csv
│   ├── raw
│   │   ├── clusters
│   │   ├── ...
└── raw
    ├── dictionnary
    ├── labels
    ├── tdm.sp_mat
    └── X.sp_mat

Your clustering data can be found under k{X}_q{Y} with k the number of topics of q the number of clusters.

Importing in Gephi

After selecting New Project in the startup screen, go to File > Import Spreadsheet. Then you're gonna use the edges_with_topics.csv and nodes_with_clusters.csv to import the edges and the nodes.

When your importing is complete, you're ready to layout your graph. Let's use Force Atlas 2:

And let's add color the nodes by cluster: You can do the same for the edges then.

Then, in the Preview tab, you can select a few nice settings (Black background, keep the colors of edges) and export it.
